MT Ultra Prop Certified for all Aviat Husky Models


FR Husky Ultra Press ReleaseJanuary 292600 pirandello, 2017Certification complete! New Ultra STC includes all Huskies!Flight Resource-MT Propeller announces the STC certified ‘Ultra Performance Prop’ for all models of the Aviat Husky. The 80-inch diameter, 2-blade, scimitar-shaped composite propeller system with Kevlar spinner weighs only 42 pounds (as compared to 46 for the other composite prop available and 64 pounds for the OEM metal prop). The life-unlimited, repairable composite blades are protected with tough nickel-cobalt leading edges that provide 60% more protection as compared to those of the competitors composite prop. As well, the MT does not have the mandatory service bulletin requiring blade and hub replacement in the event of minor blade damage (exposed core) as does the competitor.Calibrated flight tests on the Aviat Husky test plane indicated the Ultra was 4% faster in cruise (5mph) and 9% improved in climb as compared to the 2-blade composite competitor. “I was extremely pleased to see that our propeller development proved to be a resounding success. The flight test with the MT vs. the other composite prop, performed on the same plane, same day and same conditions, clearly showed the superiority of the MT.”Larry Schlasinger Additionally, the new prop is quieter, smoother and utilizes a new paint process that virtually eliminates paint erosion. Just like all MT Husky props, this one also is able to be operated with no ‘restricted RPM’ ranges on all engines.The Ultra propeller is also available and certified with the MT reversing system for float, ski and slippery runway ops.Initial pricing is actually less than the MT 2-blade 83” wide chord prop that has been the performance benchmark for many years, it has an introductory price of $12,990 for the composite MT propeller, Kevlar spinner and STC, excluding freight.Contact Flight Resource for more information.
